    Batchoy, or batsoy, is derived from the Chinese ba chui, meaning “meat water.” The batchoy of La Paz Market, Iloilo’s signature dish, is a rich pork and beef-based broth filled with yellow noodles and topped with cut-up roast pork, chicharron, fried garlic, and scallions. Reynaldo Guillergan owns the original batchoy stand at the La Paz Market in Iloilo City. He inherited the recipe and business from his father, who worked for and later bought the original noodle stand from its Chinese owners who started it fifty years ago.

    Oh wow! Thank you. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif  This is exactly the type of recipe I've been looking for! My ex's family is from the Philippine's and I have tried this dish several times around the holidays (we still get together) - it is SO good. I have asked for the recipe several times but you know how busy the holidays are, and they always seem to go back home before I get it. This is definitely one of my favorites, I also love the little eggrolls they make, I believe it's called lumpya? They are very different from the eggrolls you would get dining out. If you have that recipe to post also you would make my year!
